Search & Browse Databases


This database is freely available to the general public via the Internet.


Started in August 1991, is the premier electronic archive and preprint distribution server for research material in physics and astronomy. Significant material from mathematics, computer science, nonlinear sciences, quantitative biology, and statistics is also included.

The home page contains a simple search box in the upper right hand corner. Except for the simplest of searching, we recommend the Advanced Search form interface. This interface permits searching by title, abstract, authors, keywords across the entire record (but not full-text of the preprint), and a number of other fields.

Below the regular query form is a "experimental" full-text search box for the entire texts of the documents. Although the search results may be less up-to-date than other search modes, it is an effective way to retrieve relevant material where a desired word is not in the title or abstract, but rather buried in the full-text. 


Users can retrieve papers from arXiv via the web interface. Registered authors may use our web interface to submit their articles to arXiv. Authors can also update their submissions if they choose, though previous versions remain available.
Listings of newly submitted articles in areas of interest are available via the web interface, via RSS feeds, and by subscription to automatic email alerts. arXiv is maintained and operated by the Cornell University Library with guidance from the arXiv Advisory Board and the help of numerous subject moderators.
